What is the Gas Utility company in Marietta Ohio?
If you live in Marietta OH, the utility company for natural gas is either Dominion Energy (Dominion East Ohio Energy) or Columbia Gas of Ohio. Check your natural gas bill if you don’t know which utility you have. If you are moving to Marietta Ohio, contact Dominion Energy first; if they aren’t your utility, then contact Columbia Gas.
But regardless of which utility you have, you can choose your natural gas supplier under the Energy Choice Ohio program. Your choices are to either stay with your utility for your natural gas supply. Or choose from the list of gas companies (suppliers) for your natural gas. No matter who you choose, you’ll continue to contact your gas utility to contact in an emergency, and they are the ones that send your bill.
But here’s the catch. If you stay with the utility for your natural gas supply, you pay the Standard Choice Offer (SCO). That’s a price that changes monthly.
It’s better to shop for a gas supplier to lock in a fixed rate plan. That way you are taking control of your natural gas costs. You can review a list of gas companies that serve Marietta, or just review the rates below.
Make sure to read the details too! Some of these companies — like Xoom Energy, Ohio Natural Gas and Santanna Energy Services — are all offering incentives to sign up (i.e. $$$$$$).

Marietta Ohio Natural Gas Aggregation
If you live in Marietta Ohio, you may have already switched to an alternative natural gas supplier and not realize it.
Community aggregation is common in Ohio, and it has happened in the past in Marietta. Your city leaders agreed to auction your natural gas supply off to the lowest bidder in an auction. At the end of the auction, they committed you to buy gas from the winning supplier. If you didn’t “opt-out” you were switched to the natural gas supplier selected in the aggregation.
The most recent Marietta natural gas aggregation was with Constellation New Energy. Your gas price from October 2017 to September 2019 was $3.33 per MCF. You can just look at the prices above to see how much better your price could have been.
